ELKHART SHOW – 09.18.10 – HAILEY’S IN DENTON, TX

This Saturday, Elkhart will be playing one of our last shows of 2010 in one of our favorite music towns: Denton, TX. We’ve been looking forward to playing Hailey’s for awhile, so thanks to the good folks at Spune for making it happen.

Elkhart plays first at 9:00pm, followed by Traffico, The Orange and Exit 380.

Hope to see you there – and in the meantime, download your free copy of Elkhart’s live set from Rudyards in Houston, TX, earlier this year:

Many thanks are due to the great Tommy Ramsey of The Small Sounds fame. Not only did he lend a very capable hand on keys during our most recent Houston show at Rudyards – he also informed us that the room was set up to record live shows direct to 2-track. A short talk with the soundman later, and we were up and recording.

It was a great moment in time to capture. Not only because the current Elkhart lineup has really gelled into a tight, cohesive unit – and not only because we had the brilliant playing/sound design of Tommy Ramsey on keys and effects – but because, for whatever reason, Houston is always really good to us. Always a good turnout – always a good show. We’re thrilled to have captured that and we wanted to share it with you here.

So here it is. Live with no edits. This isn’t a pristine studio recording – there are things that mixed too high here, a bump or two there – and Lord knows I need a script or teleprompter after hearing my less than ideal stage banter (especially before the first song) – but all in all, we’re really happy with how it turned out. I may sound like Captain Obvious here, but when you have a really good sound guy that actually works the whole set – you know, paying attention and not hanging out at the bar – it’s amazing how much better things can sound. Even if he’s never heard you before.

Here’s the tracklisting and credits – feel free to download it, post it, rip it and share it with anyone who you think might enjoy it:

A Bona Fide Success

Thanks to Lance Lester for inviting Elkhart to play the Bona Fide Darling Music Showcase this past Saturday night at City Tavern with Bosque Brown and Ronnie Fauss. We had a great time playing at one of our favorite venues in town and were honored to be part of such a good bill.

Here’s a quick little review from the man himself:

Be sure to check out Lance’s Bona Fide Darling blog on a regular basis for great coverage of both local and national music. And stay tuned here for info on the next Elkhart show. Nothing on the books yet, but there are some things in the works with both our Dallas and Houston friends.

Welcome to the new Elkhart website

2010. A new year. A new decade. And time for a new Elkhart website.

With the economy taking its toll on our old friends at BandSiteLive (who did a great job of hosting the old elkhartband.com website), we’ve decided to move things over here to the old WordPress blog format. Who knows – maybe we’ll even means we’ll update more than once every few months…

We’ll keep it short and sweet for now – lots of changes to come, lots of new things to share, but first and foremost – the first Elkhart show of 2010. We’re honored to share the stage with two great acts at the BonaFide Darling Music Showcase:

Saturday, January 2nd
City Tavern
Dallas, TX

Ronnie Fauss – 9:00p
ELKHART – 10:00p
Bosque Brown – 11:00p

We look forward to seeing you at City Tavern tomorrow night and on this site in 2010 – and we’ll be sure to post more, blog more, share more and record more this year as well.

Deal? Good. See ya tomorrow night.
